Description

The Isetta first appeared in Italy in 1953. Manufacturing licenses were sold to BMW in Germany and Velam in France. The first BMW appeared in April 1955 and the French car was imported into Britain in 1957. Isetta of Great Britain had a license from BMW and made their own car slightly differently. BMW broadened the range with the 600 model, a four-wheeler launched in December 1957, but it was not a success and was withdrawn two years later, the 700 taking its place. Once the Mini was introduced in 1959 BMW stopped Isetta production in 1962 in Germany and in Britain it stopped in 1964. This is a book of contemporary road tests, technical and specification data, new model introductions, driver's impressions, history and buyer's guides. Models covered include: ISO Isetta, Surburbanite, Motocoupe, Kleinwagen, 300, Velam, convertible, 600.
